Election Victory -Donald Trump Mocks Media

Published

on

Donald Trump recounted his Election Day victory for a large crowd in Florida Friday night, mocking the media for its Nov. 8 coverage.

Trump has been detailing his wins state by state as he travels around the country on his “thank you” tour, which he continued in Orlando.

On Friday he delivered a particularly colorful retelling of how election night progressed, mocking the media for predicting a win for Hillary Clinton.

As Trump, flanked by nearly 20 Christmas trees, went through the timeline of him winning several states early on in the night, the president-elect said the media were in a “state of panic.”

“Now they’re getting nervous on television, and you see these anchors they’re like sweating and crying and throwing up all over the place,” Trump said, claiming that John King’s hand was beginning to shake as he updated CNN’s election night map. “All those months he’s saying there is no path to 270 for Donald Trump.”

Trump also blasted exit polling, which he said made his team think for several hours that they were likely to lose, and chided the media’s timing on calling his win in various states. He claimed that news outlets waited several hours to call certain states like Pennsylvania “for commercials.” News outlets like the Associated Press calculate when to name a winner based on vote totals and on-the-ground data.

Trump, dropping his voice to mock a news anchor, said: “‘We have bad news, ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump-‘ and now the guy’s getting sick, he’s ready to throw up all over.”

Hardship: We Plan To Establish A National Commodity Board To Crash Food Prices – VP Shettima

Published

on

Vice President, Kashim Shettima, disclosed this on Tuesday during a two-day high-level strategic meeting on climate change, food systems and resource mobilization held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to Shettima, the board’s mandate includes assessing and regulating food prices, as well as overseeing a strategic food reserve to stabilize prices of critical grains and other essential food items.

“Our solution to the potential food crisis has become immediate, medium, and long-term strategies. The short-term strategy entails revitalizing the food supply through specific interventions like the distribution of fertilizers and grains to farmers and households to counteract the effects of subsidy removal; fostering collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Water Resources for efficient farmland irrigation, ensuring year-round food production, and addressing price volatility by establishing a National Commodity Board.
“This board will continually assess and regulate food prices, maintaining a strategic food reserve for stabilizing prices of crucial grains and other food items,” Shettima said.

On how the government is handling the security challenges that have prevented farmers from working on their farms, he said:

“I wish to assure you that we will engage our security architecture to protect the farms and the farmers so that farmers can return to the farmlands without fear of attacks.
“We won’t only make it safe for farmers to return to their farms, but we will also ensure the activation of land banks. There are currently 500,000 hectares of already mapped land that will be used to increase the availability of arable land for farming, which will immediately impact food output.”
